Philadelphians young and old lined up as early as 9:30 a.m. Monday morning to see Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speak at Temple University’s Mitten Hall. This was Secretary Clinton's first speech in Philadelphia since her pneumonia diagnosis. Support for Secretary Clinton was strong, with the hall reaching full capacity within an hour of its opening to the public, requiring the fire marshals to declare that no further persons would be allowed in the hall.
Not everyone attended the event to express their support for Clinton. Certain individuals protested outside, urging passers-by to vote either for third-party candidates or Wharton alum and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Secretary Clinton’s visit to Temple came after her recent weak support in the polls among young voters aged 18-35, according to NBC Philadelphia.
